. the personalities here. there is a collapse here. i think what is important in the big picture is it was groundhog's day over the collapse although yesterday was a very dramatic day. that is tax increases. when you heard the speaker saying that the president had moved the goal post, he was talking about an insistence on $400 billion in tax increases that he said essentially the white house put there on the table at the last minute. then you heard from president obama yesterday, a very frustrated president obama, that he did not understand why the speaker was walking away from really what the white house sees as a sweet deal considering how much it has wrinkled the rank and file. you heard the president say he felt like he had been left at the altar by speaker boehner. let's listen to both sides. >> i just got a call about a half hour ago from the speaker himself. can they say yes to anything? we have now put forward a package that would significantly cut deficits and debt. it would be the biggest debt reduction package we have seen in a long time. it is hard to understand why speaker boehner would
. and this going on in washington is a big part of the reason why. before i served in congress i ran a small business in ohio. i was amazed at how different washington d.c. operated than every other business in america. where most american businesses make the hard choices to pay their bills, live within their means. in washington, more spending and more debt is business as usual. well, i've got news for washington, those days are over. president obama came to congress in january and requested businesses as usual. he had ner routine increase in the national debt, but we in the house said not so fast. here was a president asking for the largest debt increase in american history on the heels of the largest spending binge in american history. and here's what we got for that massive spending binge. a new health-care bill that most americans never asked for. a stimulus bill that's more effective in producing material for late night comedians than it was in producing jobs. and a national debt that has gotten so out of hand it sparked a crisis without precedent in my lifetime or yours. the united st

the table, the problem is so big we won't bo able to fix it and the politics are such that it's going to be impossible to get everybody around the table to come one a deal. it really is time for everybody to put these lines in the sand aside and start trying to fix the problem, which is what i think is gang of six did this week breathes a lot of new life into this whole discussion of how do we fix this problem in a way to get a lot of people to sign on and by doing it smartly that's going to help tremendously. >> do you think that the market, the rating agencies and others looking at it from the outside will take it seriously if there is some sort of agreement, a handshake whatever you call it between the president and the speaker of the house that has 217 votes and can get through the house, that there's an agreement for things that will be triggered down the road, is that going to be good enough, tax reform down the road? >> there's a lot of risk. people tend not to believe politicians doing hard things later. at the same time we need to lift the debt ceiling. we need to do that rig

[laughter] i'm an atheist, and in dangerousville, ohio, in 2008 you asserted that no organization receiving taxpayer funds would be able to discriminate in hiring or firing based on a person's religion. however, you have not rescinded the executive order that permits this type of discrimination. in a time of economic hardship when it's difficult for a person to get a job based on her skills, what would you say to a woman who has been denied employment because of her religion or lack of religious beliefs by a taxpayer-funded organization? >> well, this is a very difficult issue, but a more narrow one than i think might be implied. it's very straightforward that people shouldn't be discriminated against for race, gender, sexual orientation and/or religious affiliation. what has happened is that there has been a carve outdating back to president clinton's presidency. for religious organizations in their hiring for particular purposes. and this is always a tricky part of the first amendment. on the on
to take on our deficit is with a balanced approach. one where the wealthiest americans and big corporations pay their fair share too. >> reporter: meanwhile the leader of the democratic majority in the senate, harry reid, has been working on a competing proposal. it would raise the debt ceiling and cut $2.7 trillion in spending. the savings would come from federal agencies and defense spending but avoid controversial changes to entitlement programs and the u.s. tax code. >> so now all the republicans have to do is say yes. unfortunately, the republicans who used to run the congress on the caucuses are being driven by the radical, right wing that is so in tune with the tea party. they want their leaders to ignore the american people as they're doing. they want their leaders to ignore the business leaders like the chamber of commerce that they're ignoring. and even a majority of republicans around this country want something to happen and they're refusing to do that. >> reporter: this afternoon reid's plan got official endorsement from the white house spokesman describing it as a
't particularly like bad acronym. >> it's not my favorite either. >> this is a big deal. in i don't dig it should be trivialized and i think it is one area where there is not enough done that there is not enough central administration of budget authority. >> ride, so i will stick with national intelligence manager. and, i think the challenge is that we do face a much more difficult vegetarian byram and then we did in the last few years and i fully appreciate that reality. i've seen it in my role at nsa where i have been part of the senior leadership meetings about how nsa is going to react and respond to the budget constraints that we are likely to face, that we will face. the question will be, how do we make sure that we are focusing on the right priorities as a community and how do we achieve efficiencies where we can in order to meet the challenge that the current budget environment proposes? >> well, you see, from my point of view counterterrorism is extraordinarily important. is vital to the protection of the homeland. therefore having a strategy and an approach to it and a pattern and a pra
for republicans and no real cuts to entitlements so is that the big issues dodged in both of the plans, and the thing is, also, thomas, speaker boehner is a more short-term deal that speaker boehner says they do not want to pass, but what can be done reality and legislatively in the eight-day window that you mentioned. you have the two plans going on the own train, and jay carney said we need a train to reach the station. and it is interesting if harry reid can get cloture on his plan and whether or not one of these is the ones that are left at the end that one side has to stomach. it is looking certainly to be like that, thomas. >> nbc's luke russert on capitol hill, and we will wait and watch. thanks, luke. >> indeed. >>> and the u.s. is urging the imof the raise the ceiling and cut friending. they say that the u.s. should concentrate on entitlement reform. and now a new poll is that the u.s. citizens are losing faith in their lawmakers. 71% say they are not very confident or not confident at all. that is coming up with lawmakers and whether or not they will be able to reach a deal.
will be raised by next week, but the big question that everybody is asking is how is this going to happen, because it seems that all sides are digging in the heels and the white house continuing to insist that the president would veto a short term plan which is that plan put forth by speaker boehner that is as kelly mentioned would increase the debt ceiling in increments for the first time for six months, and press secretary jay carney, again, today saying that the president would veto that if it made it to his desk, and carney saying that bill would doubtfully pass the senate, but the president said in the remarks last night he does support the plan put forth by reid which would of course, decrease the deficit by $2.7 trillion and raise the deficit through 2012, and here is what press secretary jay carney had to say about the reid plan earlier today. >> it is a legitimate compromise measure. we believe it could pass the senate and the house if folks gave it a fair shake, and we appreciate senator reid putting it forward. the fact that there remains confidence in the world that washington
